How can a building with nearly 60 percent glass on the exterior—one that is operated for only a few days per year and served by existing central plant systems—achieve LEED certification? The answer is: not easily.
Additional difficulties come with atypical or complex buildings going after LEED-NC. Session 402 reviews the University of Cincinnati Nippert Stadium pressbox major renovation and the process of attaining LEED certification. High performance glazing, displacement ventilation, effective lighting design and efficient plumbing selections were among the contributing categories. This presentation will guide the attendees through the design and LEED processes, specifically pointing out the added complexities at various steps that come with a project of this type.
The attendees will understand the energy savings opportunities that exist with atypical projects such as a University Pressbox.
Attendees will learn which LEED-NC credits are feasible and more difficult given an atypical project type.
Attendees will review the energy efficient design processes used throughout the design of this project and how that affects the LEED process and associated credits.
Attendees will gain insight on the LEED difficulties associated with a project with nearly 60% glass on the exterior, operated for only a few days per year, and served by existing central plant systems
